Maria, try Catherine's. The have lovely business wear in large sizes. My sister (big like us... or as she calles it 'sturdly built) shops there all the time and always looks sharp and well turned out. Plus they have sales all the time and send out coupons to their card holders frequently.

Jan 2nd 2008 9:25PM It's been said that there's no such thing as *bad* chocolate, but Hershey's comes damned close. To me it always tasted like they added sawdust to the chocolate.
Jan 2nd 2008 2:46AM Why should I stay home and support your supposed 'people who are hungry and cold with no home, little starving children, and so many other needs that are not met.' when I worked 36 years in welfare and saw those supposed 'hungry and cold' people take the system for all that it was worth.
Put a limit on how much a person can receive no matter how many children they have. I saw cases where a woman would have a kid every three or four years so she'd never have to go to work. And she could never remember who the father was so the system couldn't charge him support.
If they want a free ride, let them live in government housing, wearing clothing that they're given, instead of the designer labels that I saw them wearing when I'd do a case interview. Let them eat in the government cafeteria in said government housing. If they don't like it, let them get a job!
I worked for my money for retirement and deserve to spend it where and how I want.
Dec 28th 2007 11:51PM On the other side of the coin, as a physically handicapped person who ends up fighting with hotels about rooms with flat accessed showers, this is a good sign for me. I can't tell you how many times I've requested a handicapped accessed room and found one with a tub instead of a shower and that tub has no way for a person in a chair to get into the tub, much less out of it without help. The last hotel I stayed in had thier tub access cut in half by their 'handicapped accessible' sink and there was no way I could get into the tub. Not to mention that they never have any grab bars on the *OUTSIDE* of the tub.
What about the growing number of people who are physically handicapped who travel alone. Yes, we do exist and the idea of not having to battle hotels about a shower I can get into is important.
Dec 21st 2007 1:57PM Twenty years ago, my cousins who were in their late 40s adopted three siblings. What they weren't told was that all three had tested drug positive when they were born and all three had medical problems. Add to that the fact that the person approving the adoption felt she owed my cousin because he'd always given her a good evaluation when he was a boss and the fact that both my cousin and his wife were only children and 'perfect children' and you have a recipe for disaster.
Over the 15 years they had the kids there were countless behaviorial problems, visits to family counselors and the situation ended when first the oldest and then the middle kid ran away from home and got themselves declared emancipated minors. The oldest ended up in trouble with the law, and the middle boy got two girls pregnant at the same time.
The youngest girl stayed with my cousins until she turned 18 but then left, too.
I heard from the youngest over thanksgiving weekend. She didn't want to contact her parents yet, but wants to get back in touch with the family and eventually meet up with her adoptive parents. She's married and has two kids, but I always wondered if they would have been better off with two less 'perfect' people.
I'm going to suggest that we all get together for dinner at a restaurant over the christmas holidays and see what happens.
